Five years ago I had an accident and tore the ligaments and muscles in my leg and severely bruised my shin bone. After two courses of physical therapy I still suffered from constant pain and nothing seemed to help. I decided to look into Naturopathic medicine because conventional medicine was not working and the only treatment and relief conventional medicine offered was drugs. I found and researched a treatment called Neural Prolotherapy. I went to Dr. Colleen Amann and after the first treatment I was amazed! I didn’t have any pain. And after each treatment the pain has been diminishing. I would like to say a huge thank you to Dr. Amann. She was incredible! She really took the time to listen to me and has a way of making me feel comfortable and calm. She is very caring and compassionate and always took the time to check up with me on how my treatment was working. I would highly recommend Dr. Amann as a doctor. --CK
